If your flight arrives into Lyon Airport after our last bus, you could get to Oz using a private transfer. We always recommend Actibus. Alternatively, use the Lyon Airport Shuttle to Grenoble and then change to get the public bus to Oz. Don’t forget, you could book a Single with Ben’s Bus for one leg of your journey and then use one of the options above for the other leg.
We generally allow 45 minutes for customers to clear Passport Control and Baggage Reclaim. We may allow more time when we think the airport may be busy.
If you are not at the bus bay at Lyon Airport on time, we can wait for you but we may not be able to wait longer than 15 minutes after your bus’ scheduled departure time. After that, if we have a later service that day, you can jump on that for free is there is room. We leave empty seats on all our services for exactly this reason.
Ben’s Bus monitors flight arrival times so you don’t need to contact us if you are delayed. Our team will be busy trying to accommodate you on another service. Or they may be holding the bus back. On Saturdays, when you come out of Arrivals, just find our rep and they will update you. On other days, please call the number on your eTicket.
The journey between Lyon Airport and Rochetaillee usually takes about 1 hour 50 minutes in normal traffic. From Rochetaillee to Vaujany in a taxi takes a further 25 minutes. It is advisable to give your taxi driver your Ben’s Bus departure time from Lyon Airport in advance. They will then suggest how to communicate with you on the day to facilitate a swift changeover.

To ensure you get to the airport in time for your flight home, we allow more time when we know the travelling conditions may be bad, such as during the school holidays. On weekdays, since our buses need to pass along the Grenoble ring road, we allow more time if we pass that at rush hour.
